Following government advice, we have temporarily suspended all of our indoor play sessions due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
We understand that our Incredible Kids families are facing challenging times, so we have developed an exciting programme of support for our families including outdoor play sessions, tuff tray delivery service and virtual events.
There are lots of conversations happening in our online community. We have regular news posts, and all of our members’ parents and carers, staff and volunteers have been invited to join our closed Facebook group where we are sharing lots of activity ideas, and health and well-being information.
To further help our families we have collated some useful resources. See below for more information and signposting to other support groups. Feel free to contact us if you can’t find the help you are looking for and we will try to assist and/or put you in touch with the relevant service.
